A young Indian American girl named Navya is empowered to face her fears while celebrating Navarathri, the nine-night Hindu holiday honoring the divine feminine, with her female relatives in this picture book by Indian American creators Lakshmi Thamizhmani and Avani Dwivedi. 

From visiting with family to golu hopping and more, Navya loves everything about Navarathri—except singing in front of a crowd. She's too afraid. Will the support of her female relatives and the goddess Durga help Navya overcome her fear?

This empowering story of girlhood, Shakti, and the nine days of Navarathri is perfect for festival celebrations! 

Back matter includes an author's note, glossary, more information about the holiday, and a recipe for a chickpea snack.
